Note on no caffeine and no sweet-n-low: no stomach upset on yesterday's run, no headaches...but I need to get more sleep...geez Imagine that...I quit caffeine and I end up needing to modify my behavior to facilitate the transition because I am no longer using a drug. You'd think getting enough sleep wouldn't be THAT hard.
Note on picture: A friend gave me this yesterday and I saved it for my evening tea. It has a crunchy chocolate (dark) outer shell with a wafer-like inner layer with scrumptious creamy chocolate inside. This is a Ferrer Rondandt and only 55 calories. I guess the question here is...why the heck am I eating fun sized snickers when I could be eating this?
Note on weight loss: Ok...so I re-loss the two pounds I gained. But, now I am thoroughly annoyed and re-determined to get this next pound lost and somehow get myself back on track with a pound a week average. That means no over-eating on Thanksgiving, this weekend or next weekend when we have guests coming into town. I'm tired of fooling around at this weight. I'm actually feeling a little ticked at spending the last two weeks gaining and losing and losing precious weight loss time. But for me, being ticked and disgruntled is a good thing for weight loss.
Oh. Happy Friday!!!
